Steel Trap

So a few months ago, we started noticing that The Politician would come up with some random memory from forever ago that was spot on.

Like we gave him Gatorade, which we never buy, and he said "Oh, like I had when I went to Six Flags", which was 18 months ago.

And last week I was cutting a plum for The Wild Child and he said, "Momma, remember when you held me on the ground and tried to make me eat a plum?" Yes, I totally did this because I was so frustated that he wouldn't eat any fruit, and I am totally embarassed that I let myself do something so nutty, but, OMG this was over 2 years ago.

And today, he came up with this, which I transcribed since I was already at the computer:

The day that I went to the dentist and he said my teeth look good, then DD splashed her car through a lot of water, like 140 pounds of water, then she went to the place where they get air back into cars. The tow truck helped her. Then I bonked my head with a soccer ball when DD came to my house after her car was in water.

Holy shit ya'll, that actually happened, in that exact order, but last April.

I am freaking out a little.

We say the same thing when the kids bring up something from way back when - their memories are not cluttered yet is what we say!
